Shadow Over The Atlantic


I received a free Kindle copy of Shadow Over the Atlantic: The Luftwaffe and the U-Boats: 1943-45 by Robert Forsyth courtesy of Net Galley and Osprey Publishing, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review to Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my history book review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Plus pages.

I requested this book as I read a great deal about World War II, but not much about U-Boats and their interaction with the Luftwaffe. It is the first book by Robert Forsyth that I have read.

This is a well researched book, but it is not one that will rivet you to your seat and cannot put down. The author presents the facts and story is a well detailed history of the relationship between U-Boats and the Luftwaffe. It lacks the engagement that some of the other authors of the time period have developed that makes for a more enjoyable read.

I recommend this to anyone with an interest in World War II in Europe, the Luftwaffe and U-Boats. But be prepared for a somewhat dry recitation of the facts.
